Lesser Known France

The big-name wine regions of France, such as Bordeaux and Burgundy, are fully deserving of their lofty reputations, but it is often from the lesser known regions and grape varieties that the really interesting wines are to be found. We’ve chosen three brilliantly different French wines for you to taste and enjoy.


  • Domaine Plou ‘Tuffeau’ Blanc de Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2017 - Superb, lightly sparkling white from the Loire Valley. 100% Chardonnay, it has wonderfully pure green apple and citrus fruit, and a finish which is bone dry, crisp and refreshing.


  • Maison des Ardoisieres Silice, Vin des Allobroges, France 2019 -
    Produced from the Jacquere grape in the French Alps, this a wine which is so unique it almost defies description, but here goes- citrus, peach and lightly floral, but also zingy, saline and intensely mineral. Like crushed stones and lemon. The finish had a distinct salty tang.


  • Domaine de la Pinte Poulsard Arbois, Jura, France 2018 - The relatively unknown grape Poulsard is the best kept secret of the Jura, a wine with the elegance and finesse of Pinot, but with firmer structure and acidity. Red berry fruit, a touch of savoury spice and lovely grippy finish.
